Oyster and Blade

Novel

by Loke, Lilian

Victor leads a double life—he is in the catering and the burglary business. The book is the tale of a risky deal in an unforgiving world told by a writer who has a virtuoso talent for dark humor.

 wife and daughter disown him, he decides there is only

one way to win back his family. As soon as he gets out, he is going to open his own restaurant. Georg also struggles with two different identities. He is an iconoclastic artist and the heir to a billion-dollar meat processing empire, but refuses to touch his inheritance money. He equally despises the barbaric operations of his family’s company and the brutal business of the art world. He has a deep desire to shake up society with radical artistic actions—the kind of actions that will inflict some real pain. When Victor ends up crashing at Georg’s place, they come to an arrangement. Victor will teach Georg how to be a burglar and, in return, Georg will give Victor the capital he needs for the restaurant. Everything seems to be going according to plan until Georg gets out of control.


Lilian Loke “creates haunting characters, beautiful yet deeply sad scenes and shows off the maladies of our society in a sharp-tongued, sometimes truly mean way”, Buchkultur.
